Putin pets a snow leopard
Putin, when arriving for the Olympics, visited a preserve for the endangered snow leopards. The location of the preserve for the snow leopards is located in the mountains around the growing Sochi. Putin said that since hosting the Olympics Games, they should also try to help preserve the snow leopards. The preserve was created 5 years ago during the first steps of hosting the Olympics Games, which was all about environment conservation. Soon snow leopards from the preserve will be released into the wild in southern Russia where they previously became extinct in 1970.
